BARABOO - Each year, a group of School of Veterinary Medicine students from UW-Madison volunteer their time and perform annual health checks on the captive flock residing at the International Crane Foundation in Baraboo, Wisconsin. These critical check-ups are essential for providing the best care possible for the foundation's breeding flock. The experience also provides a unique opportunity for the vet students to get first-hand experience working with an endangered species.
